Hamilton, Vettel, Bottas. That's it for P1. There may be some Ricciardo, Raikkonen, Verstappen podiums but not P1. KI agree with mac_d, anyone else on the top step will be the result of sort of fiasco.

Who would I like to see finish in 1st place, Raikkonen, Hulkenburg, Massa, Perez, Grosjean, Alonso.

A wreck in the tunnel at the start of the pit window at Monaco brings out a safety car right after Grosjean leaves the pits. Leading to the first win for Haas. ;)

May be the wrong thread but I couldn't think of another one.

A piece of useless trivia.

4 of the first big motor sport events of the year were won by a Sebastian with one spelling or another.



Indy Car Bourdais



Formula E. Buemi



Monte Carlo Rally. Ogier.



Formula 1. Vettel.



It might have been 5 if Loeb had managed to win the Rallycross.

RedBull have a chance at street circuits and/or a wet race. I think they can win a race on a split strategy once or twice this year.

I'm going for:
Hamilton 8 wins
Vettel 6 wins
Bottas 3 wins
Raikkonen 1 win
Ricciardo 1 win
Verstappen 1 win

Unless Red Bull make a huge leap forward they aren't winning races this year. They are much, much closer to 4th than to 2nd right now.

Let's not forget Red Bull was closer to the front at Melbourne than last year. Sure, it's a big gap, but not impossible.

But had a smaller gap to 2nd. Closing that enabled them to pick up wins when Mercedes tripped over.
